Sheri Winter Clarry has been in all aspects of real estate and business development for eighteen years, and has been Corcoran’s North Fork top producer from 2005 to 2012. But at the same time, she is a devoted wife, a loving mother of two and an avid boater in Southold. Enjoying a beautiful home on the North Fork and Manhattan with her family, while catering to her exclusive clients, Sheri describes both business and personal aspects of her busy life:
NFRES: You were a founding member of Ralph Lauren Media. What made you turn to real estate? SWC: I’ve been in and around the business for many years – during my senior year in high school and freshman year of college I worked for a luxury brokerage in Saddle River, NJ, my hometown. I was enthralled with the market, and by 23 I owned my first property. Before the move to Ralph Lauren Media I worked for a Manhattan developer by the name of M.J. Raynes as well as MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc., which gave me insight into the development side of real estate, to which is a large part of my business.
NRES: Where are the best values right now on the North Fork?
SWC: The entire North Fork, actually. It’s very laid back and low-key but there’s still great food, shopping, boating, and we have spectacular beaches!
NFRES: What are the most common mistakes made by buyers and sellers?
SWC: Honestly number one is not working with a top broker. There’s a lot of information involved in sizable transactions, and your broker plays an integral role in ensuring all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Choose someone who will get the job done.
NFRES: What is one of your more notable sales in the past year?
SWC: My most notable sale so far this year has been a challenging property to sell. It had been languishing on the market for years. It is a gorgeous 37-acre estate, 14,000 sq. ft. home with a working horse farm and a farm filled with incredible nursery stock. The perfect buyer is purchasing the property, which is one the best parts of the job, making that perfect match!
NFRES: What are some things you like to do, and places to be when you are not selling everything in site?
SWC: Oooh I like that question! I’m blessed to have a loving and fabulous husband, and two incredible children. Spending time with them is at the top of my list! Us Clarrys LOVE boating! My husband and I enjoy visiting the vineyards such as Croteaux and Macari, while also eating out at some of our favorite restaurants. To name a few: Blue Canoe, Frisky Oyster, Love Lane Kitchen and Pace’s Dockside at Strong’s Water Club and Marina.
